Dance

Dance is a romantic greeting card featuring two mannequins – a couple with arms entwined and one saying ‘Dance with me, I want my arms around you.’

It is a wonder, isn’t it how easily we relate to mannequins, puppets, and soft toys. One could say there is a little miracle going on when they bring out emotions in us. They cut through cynicism and a glacial exterior and soften us. In a split second we turn to putty in their hands. Sometimes we carry these little creatures with us from childhood through into adulthood. Despite reaching maturity we still find a space inside ourselves to give way to unbounded affection.

Ah, human emotions are so complex. Even when what we are looking at are two wooden figures. There they are propped in position and yet we can imagine the intimacy and the music to which they are dancing.

The Intensity And the Passion

What dance and what music are they dancing to? If I had to hazard a guess I would say it is something Spanish or South American. Perhaps it is the tango with its passion. Certainly it is a dramatic dance that requires total commitment. See how the two of them twirl around one another, staring into each other’s eyes. Their heads are touching or almost touching, and the passion reaches fever pitch. But they are nonetheless in total control of their bodies. Although they are ready to collapse into each other’s arms, they hold back and stamp out the dance moves with their feet. The wooden floor resounds with the slap of heels. And the guitar picks out the high notes and drives the dance onwards.

Afterwards, the couple sit side by side on the bench, their chests heaving with the exertion of the dance.
